    SWIM is prescribed 90 Opana 40mg. extended release pills a month. Every month he sells 60-70 of them (rails the rest), and then buys methadone off the street. His doctor won't prescribe him methadone because he is also on 4mg. of zanax a day. I know selling the pills isn't a good idea, so i'm wondering if being honest w/ a doctor and telling them you take dones is a good idea.... or should he just stay on his dishonest path??

    Honesty is key to a happy and succesfull life. Swim thinks your doctor would understand your circumstances. No drug is good for you but methadone from a clinic is much safer from getting it on the streets. If you would get off the xanax your doctor might be more than happy to help you out with your situation. But swim has been there and done that its not as simple as to stop taking it explain your situation to your doctor ask him if you start getting xanax dose reductions you could gradually work your way to what your looking for. Note were swims from they do a UVA once a week before they allow you to get your dose. Remeber what swim is saying is just advice swim could be wrong but swim is confident in what he is saying.

    what's uva?

    Kind of off-topic, but kind of on. SWIM obviously has much experience w/ opiates. Do you think DHC would provide any euphoria for SWIM, and in what dosage??? SWIM heard it compares to methadone.............

    swims not sure the definition behind uva but thats what they called the drug screenings.

    Swim believes DHC is shorting acting than methadone maybe leading to repeated oral doses versus 1 or 2 doses of methadone a day depending on situation. Swim has no personal experience with dhc but thinks that the euphoria rush may be better than methadone. Is it as effective as methadone,better?? Swim is NOT 100% sure Swim doesnt want to steer you on a wrong path just use the search engine itl provide you with the information you need.
    Maybe for you situation dhc would be better depending on the half life of your opiate of choice, theres also other options that are available.

    Majorly disclaiming this as purely SWIM's opinion, SWIM would not stake anything on this so if it sounds offensive or abrasive, take it with a grain of salt please:

    SWIM firstly doesn't understand why someone would trade up oxymorphone for crappy ass methadone unless it was for a whole shitload of money. I mean a whole shitload. Anyone can take an oxycontin for the first time, walk into a clinic, lie, and get methadone - it's basically non-euphoric dogshit with zero rush capacity to boot. Which is why the government doesn't mind having it dished out like candy, being one of the least recreational opiates next to suboxone. Someone who has never experienced euphoria from a "good" opiate (like oxymorphone), or who only has done something extremely weak like codeine, might think methadone is great, but comparatively it is horrible next to other opiates in terms of euphoria - and what little euphoria someone might get off of it at first will quickly vanish. Oxymorphone is a million times better, so SWIM assumes this is for the money?

    Second, if this dishonesty is eating you alive so badly that coming clean would be less painful then going through a life with the probability of never getting adequate pain treatment ever again, I guess you better do it. If you can still sleep at night over it, the only thing telling your doctor is going to accomplish is getting your badass prescription (that people would kill for) yanked, and getting blacklisted as a drug abuser and dealer who can never get their pain relieved for the rest of their life.

    How did you manage 90 40mg oxymorphones a month anyways? SWIM is a heroin addict, and if he could get an opiate prescription like that instead of having to run around doing illegal bullshit, he would actually be happy in life and become an incredibly productive member of society again.

    Swim agrees mostly with the above post. However, swim used to really love methadone. Swim always prefered methadone because of the long lasting high and while the rush isn't quite like most of the more recreational painkillers, swim could definitely get a rush from it as long as he took enough. Even after taking it everday for many months, he still very much enjoyed it. That being said, the idea of prefering it over oxymorphone is absolutely insane. Seriously, have you ever actually taken the opana? That's one hell of a script swiy have there and swim thinks maybe you need to try it again if you only tried it once or twice. Oxymorphone is pretty much the holy grail of opiates and swim doesn't think he would trade it for anything.

    Swim is going to disagree with dyingtomorrow. Swim actually loves the high from methadone. There's good euphoria and most importantly, it lasts for a long time. When swim was on heroin, he'd love it evey two weeks when he could score 40 mg waffers for about a third the price of the dope it took him just to be well all day. He could take 40 or 60 mg and get a little buzz and be well for over 24 hours. That compared to the 3 bags he had to shoot a day and barley felt anything besides the initial rush. Swim actually prefers methadone over snorting heroin. The only thing better about heroin is the great rush you get from shooting it. Methadone has no rush when i.v.ed. As far as Opana goes, swim used to be able to get the 5 mg and didn't think they were that great. A five is maybe like a 10 mg percocet. Swim would eat about ten Opana's and get high, but the price of them was through the roof, so it wasn't worth it.

    As for the OP, do not tell your doc you sell your pills unless you want to be permentaly cut off. Abusing the pills is one thing but selling them is a whole different ball park. Get off the Xanax if you want methadone, if you don't wanna do that, stick with what you're doing. You should however be aware of the severe penetalies for selling perscription opiates. States are cracking down on that shit like crazy, especially if you live in a rural area. Be very careful about what swiy is doing. Oh, DHC doesn't compare to methadone. As far as angelsia, length of effects, and euphoria, it's on par with codeine and hydrocodone.

    Dyingtomorrow said it perfectly, in terms of euphoria, oxymorph and heroin blows done out of the water. From an econ prespective though, it could possibly be reasonable seeing the done will keep you well longer but still, 90 Opana 40s?! That is quite close to the holy grail, nothing but pure fun with that script. Youre talking about one of the most euphoric opioids there is, especially when iv`d, not trying to recommend that as its a harm reduction site but if you just so happened to try it, guaranteed you will be in love.

    SWIM has been doing heroin for about 6months now, smoking and snorting, only used a rig Once.. SWIM has moved up to white china now, and yesterday SWIM obtained a script for 5mg Opana, but SWIMs been snorting, tried smoking, and chewing em up, but STILL cannot get high!! SWIM just feels well! SWIM was offered to go back to methdone, or morphine, or try fentanyl patch, the doc just said NO oxycontin because its to inclined to abuse?? hahaha! before SWIM moved on to heroin, SWIM was on oxycontin by script, then tolernece built up and the doctor moved SWIM to morphine, then methadone, then SWIM decided to get clean and went on suboxone for 6 months, then SWIM fell in love with heroin, and well SWIM is back as SWIM said, now on Opana.. 5mg ER

    So, SWIM is wondering.. if SWIM can do a half gram of white china within a 2days, snorting, what do you guys think, how many opanas does SWIM need to take to get his/her euphoria back? :) thanks if you can get me any advice!

    I've been on 90 mg of methadone for 4 and a half months. And I'm on msw which means I'm going down 5mg a day. I'm on 60 mg today. Plz don't judge. But at what mg will I be able to feel my opana 15s again? What mg and how many days after my last does. Bc I'm so afraid the receptors in my brain are screwed for life although I've only been on methadone for that short period of time
